Obverse Books Sale Continues With First Faction Paradox Novels

November marches on, and as promised, Obverse Books is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Faction Paradox with sales on selected items.
The discounts take effect on different titles each weekend this month.
On 24th November 1997, the Doctor Who Eighth Doctor novel, Alien Bodies, written by Lawrence Miles, was released, and was the first full-length work to feature the voodoo, bone-mask-wearing cultists, Faction Paradox. Since then, the Faction have appeared in numerous mediums. This weekend only (11th- 12th November 2017), the first two Faction Paradox books from Obverse are reduced in price in both paperback and ebook formats!
These are:

Against Nature by Lawrence Burton

You will make war with the beast of the city, and the people will be grateful, and in this way will your fame be fortified.

Every fifty-two years, the God Xiuhtecuhtli – incarnate for the purpose as a young Mexica male – would give himself in sacrifice in order that the universe should be renewed and the passage of time would continue as it had done before. Those born to other cultures and other eras might be forgiven for their failure to appreciate this great and selfless act.

It was therefore strange that such a profound understanding should arise in one so far removed from the heart of this world, both veteran and victim of the terrible, endless war in heaven, a man the Mexica knew briefly as Coahualxiu bearing a death wish the size of creation…

The Brakespeare Voyage by Simon Bucher-Jones and Jonathan Dennis

“The Tribunal Decision in the matter of the Great Houses vs. Scarratt is as follows.

That the orders lawfully issued to the said Scarratt were deliberately ignored, as recorded in Scarratt’s own thoughts as recorded through the media first of the recording circuits of his timeship and then of the biodata retrieved from exhibit A.”

In a ship that size of a galaxy, stretching across time from Bridge to tail, Robert Scarratt hunts the Leviathan, while all around him strategms and schemes unfold…

They’ll each cost £10.95 (instead of £19.95) in paperback or just £4.99 (instead of £6.99) as an ebook. But be quick: these discounts only last two days!
And don’t forget the first 100 copies of the latest Faction Paradox novel, Spinning Jenny by Dale Smith, come with a numbered commemorative 20th Anniversary stamp.
You can find the entire Faction Paradox range of novels and short stories over at Obverse Books.
